Ultima claims Top Gear lap record

Sports car maker Ultima is claiming to have beaten the Top Gear track record

Ultima GTR720

British sports car manufacturer Ultima is claiming to have beaten the time set by Michael Schumacher in his Ferrari FXX around the Top Gear test track.

In a privately conducted but independently verified test, an Ultima GTR720, powered by a 720bhp Chevrolet V8, lapped the Dunsfold aerodrome circuit in 1min 9.9sec, beating the 1min 10.7sec time set by seven-times world champion Schumacher in his £1million trackday-only FXX.

An Ultima spokesman said Top Gear had ignored repeated requests to feature its cars, so the private test session was organised instead. The GTR720 had been optimised for the circuit, but the spokesman said it was still completely road-legal, unlike the FXX.
